I am a fully qualified, experienced National Counselling Society Senior Accredited Counsellor and Approved Counselling Supervisor. I am on the National Counselling Society's register which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority, set up by the Department of Health.
I offer counselling to adults via telephone and Zoom video conferencing. Additionally, I provide individual and group Supervision to counsellors, student counsellors and non - counselling professionals.
My counselling work is focused upon helping you to find your way to feeling and coping better, whatever the difficulties that are affecting the quality of your life. I work non-judgmentally with warmth, empathy and understanding and have a calm, gentle, caring approach.
People contact me when they are facing difficulties in their life and troubles from their past. Sometimes they don't really know what is troubling them, they just know that something is not quite right. Everyone is different, I work with each person's specific need.
